In partnership with Red Bull
We’ve all got that mate who thinks their music taste is the best when, in reality, your taste in music is clearly loads better than theirs. The arguments go on and on with no clear winner – until now!
The Red Bull Culture Clash in London aims to sort that issue out once and for all, by pitting a bunch of genres against each other in one mental night.
Back in March, UNILAD went to the Red Bull Culture Clash in Manchester and had a totally mental time, so we’re looking forward to the capital’s installment.
The event is inspired by Jamaican Sound Clash culture where crews pit their skills against each other live. In London this June, four different musical styles will go up against each other, fighting to be Culture Clash champions.
Crews take it in turns to outdo each-other’s sets and the winners are judged by crowd reaction – which makes for a totally crazy atmosphere.
There’s even a decibel reader to make sure the results are backed up by real science.
If all this is getting you pumped for Cultre Clash its not too late to get your tickets.
The artists compete in three rounds – Pressure Drop, The Selector and Sleeping With The Enemy – before throwing it all into the ring in the final round, Armageddon.
Each round has different challenges to stretch the crews’ skills in a live environment and ensure the audience hear them performing at their absolute limit.
There’s a strong line-up of big names to give weight to each of the posses and make sure the night explodes:
Crew One – UKG ALLSTARS: SO SOLID CREW, DJ LUCK & MC NEAT, OXIDE & NEUTRINO, MAJESTIC, FOUNDATION (Sticky & Scott Garcia) hosted by DR PSYCHO
Crew Two – ESKIMO DANCE: WILEY and the biggest grime line-up imaginable
Crew Three – MIXPAK: POPCAAN’s first ever UK performance, DRE SKULL, TONY MATTERHORN, SEROCEE,SPICE, KRANIUM and JUBILEE
Crew Four – WIZ KHALIFA & TAYLOR GANG: WIZ KHALIFA & THE ENTIRE TAYLOR GANG
